YOU’VE swiped right, made a match and after that awkward small talk, this person could be ‘the one’. But before you’re metaphorically walking down the aisle with Mr Online you might need to rethink the mental life plans you’ve already. Here’s the 6 easy signs that you may need to think twice…
1. They don’t message you back for days
Still, while they’re entitled to leave you hanging while they do their washing/live their own life, being on and off for days at a time could indicate a power complex that you don’t want to be part of. Spot the behaviour early on, bring it up with them politely and wait for their response.
2. They send mixed signals
From gaslighting to lovebombing they come on strong, then retreat or they keep talking about taking you out, but never actually get round to doing it. “If you really like someone, you’ll find time to see them within a fortnight,” adds Caroline.
3. They refuse to use WhatsApp
Taking the next dating step is always a big deal, it’s a sign things are moving on… But if they’re not willing to move onto WhatsApp, our experts say it could mean they’re not willing to show you that app photo that’s either a) the real them or b) them with their currrent partner.
4. Their photos look familiar
It’s funny how somes potential online dates only have access to ‘a bad camera’ or ‘terrible lighting’, isn’t it? It’s 2018 people, if you can create a dating app profile, then you can probably take a clear photo – but in a study by OpinionMatters, 20% of participants admitted posting different photos of themselves or younger versions.
5. They talk about money constantly
Spouting about all your cash is the real-life equivalent of holding up a sign that says ‘date me for my money’, which funnily enough, never happens. Think about why they need the feel to talk about their money so much. It suggests deep insecurities or potential lies.
6. They keep talking about their ex
The repetition of an ex’s name is enough to make any new potential love interest feel uncomfortable. It’s not always bad, as it could just symbolise an amicable end to a relationship, but one 2016 study revealed that those who stayed in touch with their ex were more likely to do so as they wanted to get back together.
